If I was a coach I would bring up the true middie as long as he is as talented as the other player that was bought up. These days there are plenty of kids that have played travel and are talented players. As long as it's not because of the kids older brother who played at that school or that the father donated the score board. I would want my son to get pulled up because they need him and not for any other reason. You guys know how hs sports are. I think they kid would feel better about himself because he made it on his own and not because of daddy. It's a hard call because what are the coaches basing his talents on. Not from middle school cause that's worse then pal. I'm sure they don't run around and go watch the kid play travel either.
